Cabernet Sauvignon has rarely been at the table without good friends over the past decade. It's become a academic wine of sorts for us. Opening to smell, see and taste the history in each bottle. Talk about the familes who made it and what wine it compares to today. Besides our own 2015 Smith Story Wine Cellars Pickberry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, there has rarely been a new release opened from anyone else.
Cabernet in our opinion is meant to age. We're fortunate to have a healthy cellar of Bordeaux and a few greats from California too. I think this is what excites us most about our next 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon release, it means we are creating a library finally and tucking the 2015 away for a long while.
An exciting day around here with our new release. Worth a repeat read of last's years post about our Cabernet Sauvignon ...the most popular post of The Chapters in 2017! Girl Talk about Cabernet Sauvignon.
